of all, we are divided because there are big differences of opinion here about the size of government and about the direction of tax policy. the president's remarks are unhelpful. they're not really related to the current deficit debate. you can do everything he asks for and it really wouldn't change the numbers very much. the question is getting people focused on long-term spending changes that the country must have. and i think part of the dysfunction is because congress really doesn't have the rules it needs to have this discussion in a civil way. but that can change. >> so making a real dent in the long-term deficit situation requires hard choices. will we be able to balance those choices even with this politicking going on throughout the process? is compromise impossible? >>>> no, it's not impossible at all. we've seen it in fiscalistory in the past 25 years, big compromise. but it does require to focus on what we can all agree on. pick whatever spending cuts the two sides agree on, and then have the longer term discussion in the context of t the 2012 election where the american
